NaNoWriMo: How's it going?

Well, National Novel Writing Month is officially more than half way over. How are your novels coming?
I have noticed that things start to die down, so I've decided to give you all a little motivation, just maybe not the kind you're used to.
When I first started writing, I felt like I was the king of the world. I could do anything and it was super fun to do all that stuff, but writing has changed for me. It is still fun, I still feel like I'm on top of the world,  but it has changed to a more therapeutic agent. Writing is my escape, and I'm sure for some of you, it's yours too.
So here's the question, why do you write so hard at the beginning, only to give it all up at the end? You are on top of the world. Why would you deny yourself that power feeling or the calm from your "therapy"? Keep going. I know it seems hard, but once your fingers hit the keyboard, everything will be just fine.
Good luck!

So NaNoWrimo is here!
Happy National Writing Month!
For those of you who don't know what NaNoWrimo is, it is a competition that dare I say thousands of people do every November. These writers, me included, attempt to write a 50,000 word novel in 30 days. It is free and I really recommend it to you all. I know November has already started, sorry guys, but it's not too late! The contest is free and there are prizes! If you'd like to join go to I started participating in this contest last year, so you and I can figure it out together!
You know all about NaNoWrimo, so now what? Well, you should plan your novel out, it helps a lot, but you don't have to. I didn't plan the first year, but this year I am, and so far it is working better. There are these things called write ins that are be in your area, where you just go and write with other people. You don't have to go to these but they are kinda fun, plus there's usually food which is always a bonus.
Well, now you know pretty much everything about NaNoWrimo. If you have questions feel free to ask me or go to this website for help.
Happy Writing and good luck!
